Facebook, Twitter Take Down Video of Trump Saying Children ‘Almost Immune’ From Covid-19


Facebook Inc. and Twitter Inc. on Wednesday removed a video posted by President Trump in which he said children are “almost immune from this disease,” a claim that the companies said ran afoul their rules against harmful misinformation about Covid-19. The video clip—a portion of an interview aired on Fox News—attracted roughly 450,000 views on Facebook before it was taken down, according to CrowdTangle, a Facebook-owned analytics company. It also drew thousands of comments and was reshared nearly 2,000 times.
